25 y old male. If you have sore throat/cold would that cause lymph nodes in arm pit to enlarge? I thought only neck lymph nodes enlarge with sore throat

What does it mean if lymph nodes are sore in both armpits?

Monitoring Centers: Lymphatic system absorbs/carries things too big to go into the arteries/veins like bacteria eaten by white cells/digested food. Lymph nodes "taste" the lymph everywhere for bad stuff like bacteria/viruses/cancers, etc. When it detects a problem, it alerts the immune system and your body reacts.

Can the lymph nodes in your armpits hurt a few days before your period? I can't feel them but under my arms are a little sore. No visible difference

Can the lymph nodes in your armpits hurt a few days before your period? I can't feel them but under my arms are a little sore. No visible difference

More likely breast: Rather than lymph nodes, I suspect that you have a bit of "ectopic" breast tissue in your armpits. This is not terribly rare. Some women have breast tissue in the armpits. Just as the rest of your breast can get swollen and hurt before your period, so can this tissue. Best to see a doctor at this point in your cycle to be sure. ...Read more

If you have a cold, can the lymph nodes under your arm pits be sore? Thanks!

If you have a cold, can the lymph nodes under your arm pits be sore? Thanks!

No: Cold viruses may cause mild enlargement of nodes in the neck only.
Lymph nodes act as a trap or filter to prevent germs from spreading to other parts of the body, and in so doing become enlarged and tender. Cuts on your arm, or using a razor to shave the axilla, can introduce bacteria which get trapped by your lymph nodes. **See your Dr if swollen glands persist SEE:http://bit.ly/1E6i2EW ...Read more

Periodic swollen lymph nodes under armpit. Tender to touch. Very small, can barely feel but it does hurt. 3rd occurrence. Different arms.?

Hidradenitis: Periodic swelling of glands in arm pit would be more clearly defined especially with relationship to causative factors such as a primary site of inflammation spreading to nodes. Also, recurrence appearing at random at different sites and with glands so small they are difficult to palpate. Appears more likely to be inflammation of sweat glands in armpit possibly secondary to shaving. ...Read more

Could a small rash near my armpit that progressed to having small, dark centers and tender axillary lymph nodes be from a toenail fungus I may have?

Could a small rash near my armpit that progressed to having small, dark centers and tender axillary lymph nodes be from a toenail fungus I may have?

Spread of Fungus: I have never heard of spread of the fungus in athlete's feet/toenails to other body parts so it is probably rare. That being said it is an infection, and depending on personal habits, some spread makes sense. It is best to see a dermatologist for this anyway. They will probably culture both areas (or can) and see what they are healing with. Swollen lymph nodes should be taken seriously. Dr blake. ...Read more

Tender lymph nodes to the right of right breast, down under arm pit,?

Well...: If they are tender and have not been there for long AND there is nothing going on in the breast, I would venture to say they are inflammatory rather than cancer. That said, I'm a breast oncologist and have seen all sort of things so I would urge you to visit your doc as soon as you can for a good evaluation. If it gets worse or if the breast gets red and inflamed, your MD visit should be urgent. ...Read more
